Xbox One X in price decline: console bundles currently reduced

At the online shops of MediaMarkt and Saturn you can currently get the Xbox One X in connection with a top game for each 279 euros – Previous best price for bundle offers and again cheaper than the 289 or 299 euros, which were considered the lowest price in the past weeks. The following bundles are reduced:

The consoles are usually delivered free of shipping costs. If not or if you prefer this method, you can also choose to pick up the branch.

Tip: In our view, one argument for Xbox One is that with the Game Pass you get a fantastic range of games with over 100 partly top-class titles on subscription. You can use this in a particularly clever way: Get pre-paid Xbox Live Gold credit using credit cards (e.g. online or). In advance, credit is possible for a maximum of 3 years – but it is only worth it for about two and a half years because the console also comes with credit codes. Redeem the free month of Live Gold (included with the Xbox) first, then the purchased gold vouchers, then this one Offer in the Microsoft Store and finally the enclosed free month Game Pass Ultimate. Not only do you get 3 months of Game Pass Ultimate for 1 Euro, your Xbox Live Gold months are also converted 1: 1 into Game Pass Ultimate months. The conversion to the 1: 1 rate is unfortunately only possible once per Microsoft account, but is extremely worthwhile. In terms of games, you have taken care of it first – if you want, for years to come.

Xbox One X: The price development of the console

The Xbox One X was released on November 7th, 2017 at a RRP of 499 euros with a 1 TB hard drive on the European market. Just a few months later, they were obtained for a street price of around 450 euros. The console largely stayed at this price level in 2018. Only towards the end of 2018 could the console be used for special promotions less than 400 euros receive. At Amazon Prime Day in July 2019, the Xbox One X finally reached a historic low of € 250 – but for "refurbished", i.e. used and remanufactured hardware. At the end of 2019, around Prime Day in November, the Xbox One X then went through what was probably the most dramatic drop in prices to date. The console was available in numerous game bundles with a price point of around 300 euros. At MediaMarkt and Saturn as well as in the Samsung store, there were also various bundles with Samsung phones, in which the Xbox consoles were heavily subsidized.

The strategy behind it is obvious: At the end of the Xbox One lifecycle, Microsoft is making every effort to lure users into its gaming ecosystem in 2020. After all, if you already have an Xbox One X and maybe even a subscription to the Game Pass, it will be easier to get excited about the upcoming Xbox Series X, which should be fully backwards compatible with Xbox One. In addition to a wide range of games in the Xbox Game Pass, the interopter stability with the PC as a gaming platform and extremely cheap entry-level offers for the Xbox One S (with and without optical drive), the much more powerful Xbox One X consoles are therefore "sold for at excellent prices" “, Currently often in connection with current games like Gears 5, Forza: Horizon 4 and Jedi: Fallen Order. Time will tell if that's enough to get Sony.

Xbox One X: Who is it worth buying?

With the latest reports on Xbox Series X, the next generation of Xbox consoles, the question arises as to who is worth buying the Xbox One X now. The successor console is expected to appear at the end of 2020 and be backward compatible, a price is not yet known. We identified the Xbox One X as a worthwhile investment for two groups of buyers:

  • 4K enthusiasts: If you've just bought a 4K TV, monitor, or projector, an Xbox One X might go well with it. The One X offers you the best picture quality from the current consoles for most multiplatform titles, supports – unlike the PS4 – also 4K Ultra HD Blu-rays and is also whisper-quiet. In other words, the ideal media box for early 4K friends.
  • Xbox (One) newbies: For those who haven't owned an Xbox One or any of the previous Microsoft consoles, the One X is the ideal entry. Together with the attractive range of games, you have immediate access to many pearls of the game, some insider tips and also the exclusive titles of the Xbox One – albeit quantitatively rather few. In addition, the One X also offers the advantages of better performance and better picture quality thanks to super sampling on a normal HD TV – and of course you are on the safe side if you have to upgrade to a 4K TV at some point.
